Desperation

Desperation

A Poem by John

I once read
a story by 
my favorite writer,
a king of words,

then realized that he,
too,
had felt the feelings that
have come to rule
this pitiful excuse
of a life...

and then,
to my astonishment,
I realized another thing,
that rhymes and reason
are both meaningless,

and only words can fill
that empty gap
that has seemed to envelope

that empty cause that was/is

my life.
